Both shousuushi (小四喜) and daisuushi (大四喜) are standard yakuman. They are collectively called suushiihou. Both involve the kazehai (wind tiles).

The difference between the two yakuman forms are subtle. Shousuushi only need a complete group of three out of the four wind types, while pairing up the fourth type. On the other hand, daisuushi requires a complete group for all four wind types.

Shousuushi and daisuushi both have the value of a yakuman and therefore award 32000 points to a non-dealer winner or 48000 points to a dealer winner. However, as daisuushi is a rarer yakuman, in rulesets where a double yakuman is allowed, it is counted as such and awards 64000 points to a non-dealer winner or 96000 points to a dealer winner respectively.
